Remember when Duck fans were clamoring at the idea of their Heisman winner Marcus Mariota playing for Chip Kelly and his up-tempo offense in Philadelphia? Well, there’s no question that the Eagles would be fun to watch if Kelly and Mariota were somehow reunited in the NFL; however, that seems more like a pipe dream now. Kelly shocked the NFL …

Two weeks ago, I wrote that Chip Kelly and the Eagles front office seemed to be dissatisfied with star wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s attitude, and it looked like they were shopping him around.
